    Went to the cinema and here is what I thought of it:

    Okay the title sounds pants and most of us will be thinking chick flick movie, with a bit of boxing thrown in to it for the male audience bait. To be honest its neither, and then finding out its one of those true life stories directed by Ron 'Cunningham' Howard, the credibility of the film even though predictable is one v good movie.

    Russell Crowes' acting, from the strong, moody to the emotional is what we all expect-superb ,and even Zellwegger handles it well with a good deal of restraint.

    The choreography of the fight scenes are handled well, and the detail for era reprensentation are done well.

    There are defineltely parts which I feel could have been explored in more detail. The recession in particular, but Im one of those picky guys anyway.

    As mentioned before the story is predicatable, especially for those of you who have the know how of Russels Crowes character - James Braddock. Paddy Considine should have been utilsed better in my opinion But Ron Howard puts it well together and running at 2 hrs & 15 mins it doesn't feel a chore watching it.

    My Score 8.5/10 :thumbsup:
